Not particularly busy early evening – everything is rather sub-Wetherspoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Greene King - Strong Suffolk5.00GoodAges since I’ve seen this beer available on cask. A deep ruby red, complex beer. Smooth and mellow, but with only a hint of the sour flavours (which perhaps develop better in the bottle?).
Wadworth - Bishop's Tipple5.00AcceptableAmber coloured. Cloying and sweet. Is this really the same beer that used to have such a good reputation?
Marston's - EPA3.60AcceptableAn amber-coloured, easy-drinking, rather unchallenging, cheapo bitter.
Adnams - Broadside4.70Not Tried
Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Young's London Original (was Bitter)3.70Not Tried

The pub is found in Enfield, Greater London, EN2 6LE.

This is a large pub in a very prominent town centre position. It has had a rather chequered recent history and is now (2012) branded by M&B as a Samuel Cooper Freehouse – a chain which is superficially rather similar to the JD Wetherspoon chain. Subsequently (2013) rebranded to Oak Tree chain within M&B. Further rebranded to be an O'Neill's in November 2017.

We have visited this pub once, seen 5 different beers and tried 3 of them.
